Everyone Shovels Poop It doesn’t matter who you are, what you do, or where you work. I’m here at the end of yet another 3 day weekend with my kids. Last week, my son was at home in between day care and school. This week, it’s Labor Day in the U.S. and school is closed. […]
My 7 year old son is at home today… he’s not sick or anything. He’s just in between things for a day. His summer care ended on Friday, and the school year starts on Tuesday.

With all the hate, all the times I’ve been called a spammer, scammer, deceptive, and just about every other negative thing you can imagine, it would be easy for me to quit. So what keeps me going? It’s true. I get a lot of very negative feedback on the things I do. Don’t believe me? […]
I have no formal training. I’m only doing this for fun right now, but I’m thinking about dipping my toes in the water vs jumping in head first to find a “real” job. Should I do it? When I first received this question from a reader, I was a bit shocked. I looked up their […]
